yesterday's relay

Yesterday afternoon was my first race since the Perth Ultra Fest four weeks ago.  It was the North of England 6 stage road relays held at Wythenshaw Park in Manchester.

Mick Jeffrey did a sterling job organising two Otley AC teams featuring a good number of newer members of the club.  I ran for the B team and covered my 5.6k stage in 20:55.  I'm very pleased with that as it represents about 18:40 for 5k ... not bad considering I've only done two speedwork sessions in the last month.

Also pleased because it was surprisingly muddy out on the roads.  And then I remembered ... I was in Manchester - it rains a lot there.

Good to see Julian there too after his health scare earlier this year.
